Could SWAMI be messing up because of the changes Dr. D is making?

I changed my taster status to "slight taster" to see what would happen.

I did taste the very lightest something, but it was definitely delayed -- the taste appeared after I drank a sip of water and ate an almond a few minutes after the strip.

Changes to taster status may change GenoType assigned by SWAMI.


You can always change taster status back to its original value and see whether your diet report is the same as before.

Under non-taster, I'm still Warrior.

It would be helpful if someone could tell me what "slight taster" means as far as the strip. As I mentioned, I did have a slight 'broccoli' taste - but delayed. Nobody else using the same strips reported any taste, delayed or otherwise.

I tried another strip just now. I got an instantaneous 'bitter, stinging' sensation in one tiny, tiny spot on my tongue -- lasted about 1 second, then nothing.

I wonder about these strips - I contacted the seller - he doesn't send control strips -- all are taster strips, and white.

I switched my SWAMI entry to "Super-Taster" and it changed my genotype to Explorer!

My understanding is if you can taste it but not get a horribly screwed up face from the taste, you are a slight taster.  Other wise you are a taster.  Correct me if I'm wrong.

I know for sure I'm not a super-taster - I just clicked it on in SWAMI to see what would happen! Warrior - Teacher - Explorer  

It was more a stinging sensation and instantaneous bitter taste in one tiny spot on my tongue -- almost not there. I'm talking less than a second. Then a delayed very, very mild broccoli "sensation" about 3 minutes later.

I wish I had one of those yellow strips instead of the ones I got.

My taster status changes depending on if I do the test in the morning or evening... I find it possibly related to my thyroid medication I take and how much of it is in my system?

I thought it was strange that the choices in SWAMI were nontaster, slight taster, and supertaster, without just "taster."

I taste it.  Oh yeah.  But I can sort of stand it.  But my face usually goes weird.  It is delayed though.

I'm sticking with Warrior until I can get some other brand of taster strips to try. This just makes me want to get my secretor status checked. If I could find a list of Nonnie traits, I could see how closely I fit.

Sometimes taster status is a big deal. especially if it sets off other findings which were ignored as part of the previous genotype determination.

Oh yeah, definitely get your secretor status done. It helps alot with your food selections, even if you still turn out to be a Warrior. I believe Ribbit gets mo' meat than me because of her nonnieness..(I could be wrong)

Someone is sending me one of the yellow taster strips. I have no qualms about switching back to Teacher if I am a taster ... I'm just tired from all the thinking and studying.

What matters more is the foods you are supposed to eat. Is the list much different?
I doubt it. Watch the foods that are different & test how you react to them.  I know I'm probably very borderline, but I have a good diet to go on which seems more accurate than the other O variations(secretor, nonnie, hunter, gatherer) I tried.
Even if your diet is not perfect yet(I'm sure mine isn't), would you want to go back to the SAD?

My SWAMI Teacher food lists are different enough from SWAMI Warrior food lists.

I lost a lot of weight quickly on BTD Type A, and also the Teacher diet my first few weeks on GTD.

When I switched to Warrior and didn't follow the list all that well, I stopped losing weight. I didn't gain.

When I chose "Nonnie" under Warrior and tried harder to get in 6 cups of veggies per day, I started losing weight again.

I did the test at Dr. D's office. They just had me put the strip in my mouth and then take it out and she asked me if I can taste anything. So I don't think "after sip" and food is relevant to the test.  
So you sound like a non taster?

This is all funny because I feel like I have a hault on energy and weight loss. I am going to go get some romano/manchego cheese from the Teacher list because it seems to fix this probably so long as I get probiotics to some degree as well.

With out the teacher cheese everything becomes really irregular. SWAMI believes I am a warrior, and maybe I am to some degree, but not cheese wise so far... unless I am just treating a problem. Regardless the problem does exist.

My Swami has given me a couple of hard cheeses that I havn't used for years-pecorino and parmesan--I am so pleased and disposes of any lingering sense of restriction.
Also the 6 cups of vegs. is amazing--so filling without unduly raising blood sugar. If only I didn't have a tribe of possums who visit my garden regularly and strip most of the green vegs away. I think it is time to think seriously about a little food garden igloo.

There was a possum in our garage hiding after we locked up the other day.  Trying to get out knocked half full oil container down.  The lid flew off and oil all over half of the garage including newly washed car and tyres so we couldn't drive anywhere!  bikes weren't affected so I rode down the road for some degreaser.  Some good came of it, clean garage and started riding bikes again - great fun.

Given my experience moving from the Explorer diet to Teacher, the cheeses seem to be a critical part of the GTD, designed to bring balance. (Of course, my perspective comes from being a Teacher.) Too bad it can take time to discover that a diet is the wrong one (although once you've been on the wrong one for a long time, the right one can seem particularly right). I wish I had questioned whether the diet was right for me long before I did. At least I decided to look into remeasuring instead of dropping it altogether.

That's interesting about the taster strip issue. That must be frustrating to have such a tiny response that it's questionable.

Chandon that is the one thing making me disagree with SWAMI. The cheese on the Teacher diet makes me balanced. It makes me right with the world. I need probiotics too but... without it I slowly drift out of balanced health. I am going to be trying different taster strips as that is why SWAMI put me in the Warrior classification. If I put no answer for that part I get Teacher even as a non-secreter. (I am going to try sodium benzoate ones, PROP, instead of PTC paper as the instructions note some people taste one but not the other)

I might have some warriorish things in my DNA, like the ability to eat less food, but cheese... That with probiotics is the most key element to my health at this point.

This is survival of the fittest-it's us against them... but my Moggie might get zapped.
You know those metal cages that utilities put over holes in the pavement to stop us falling in? One of those, covered with permeable white garden cloth, which could be lifted on either side for planting,weeding and harvesting purposes would do. Maybe I'll go to the authority concerned and beg for a 'used' one?
The sad thing about the possums is that I have never even seen them, just got their calling cards on the tiles, and a stripped garden. You must have got a fright when your poss. leapt out of the garage.

Very interesting Jenny. Right now I am sort of eating what I KNOW works for me and ignoring SWAMI in some ways.

D of S, you are such an individual...doing it your way.
Having paid my money I am inclined to hitch my wagon to this star, and carry on exactly as told until such time that I believe it is not working...but after two days I am very satisfied and hope that day will never come.
Your plan about retesting Prop is a good one, do tell us what happens. I haven't even done that yet as I could not find any strips locally, and lost the initiative, but may do it by ordering through Gina in NZ. That, and the head measurement (which is not Warrior in my case by the way) both need to be added to my profile. However,I am confident that my general plan will not change. I printed out 47 pages of recipes today for a rainy day, and I don't anticipate needing any other cook books for the rest of my life!

I am a non-taster with PTC and PROP.

My lower leg and upper leg are so close to each other that maybe if I had them switched back I would only get Teacher. Actually I know I would only get Teacher.

Right now I am just selecting GTD3 when I run my SWAMI. I wonder though if my food would change by switching my lower leg to upper leg again. I feel like at this point SWAMI is doing very little for me. I mostly say this because there is NO QUESTION AT ALL that I need the hard cheeses to control bacteria. Without I just fall straight out of health no matter what I do. I also feel awkward about calling for SWAMI changes, like they think I am doing other people with it.

If your upper and lower legs are close enough to be a tie, lower leg always wins the tie, right?

If your response to: "What is your Upper to Lower Leg Ratio:", is incorrect I recommend contacint NAP to have it reset, rather than overiding the calculation of GenoType.

I am having trouble caring. I feel so over worked and over budget.

I am going to eat cheeses that give me balance. I can measure again and again but nothing changes the fact that I will see no health come out of a pure warrior diet. My intestines will not respond to just Kefir and Yogurt, period.

That makes sense. It seems GTD uses PROP taster status specifically, so perhaps another method can possibly not give the right results. I think Plucky said she used the method of counting taste buds and it turned out to be wrong!

Maybe you're a Teacher after all. Dairy can be so problematic for people, so it would seem that our reaction to the dairy in a given diet would be rather telling.

DOS,If you going to assume, do it to benefit you!!  I am asuming that Nap staff are so helpful, so friendly and willing to help that I will not hesitate to give them a call if I ever need to have anything reset. After all, they want us to use the stuff and promote it as an efficient, flexible tool for everyone to use.   So, go ahead, do the necessary changes you need to do in order to get what you know works for you.

I have already done it once. I just... I can spot a Warrior in a crowd you know, and they respond to the warrior cheese. I do not look like them or respond to the cheese. The only thing I respond to are the principles of the Teacher (aside from maybe the amounts). Also personality wise I am a Teacher by far...

Would swami give me very different results if the leg status changed? I mean that is the only difference if I am manually making it Teacher.

I see you are still a nontaster. I guess people have been struggling with the leg measuring issue, so perhaps that is it.

Maybe just wait a while and then, when you are relaxed and have plenty of time, take your time remeasuring/assessing each thing and compare it to what you have. Then if there is a difference, you will feel more confident about it. Have you gotten anyone to help you with the measuring? They recommend having someone help with it. I got my husband to make sure I did the seated height correctly because that is where I messed up the first time.

I have had help with all the height, seated, that stuff. My torso will always be longer unless I get in a high speed collision accident or something to pop vertebrae.

Again I am not sure I care anymore. The difference between the two lists seem negligible. I can not see SWAMI doing anything for me. At most I expect to kick the candida or bacteria, whatever it is, again. I have no other expectations.

Hey Destroyer of Smiles...You seem to have a simmiliar predicament to what I do. I'm just curious what happens when you change your Myer-Briggs setting to optional. With me that automatically makes me a teacher.

I too, do have an issue with the prop taster test and that would also change my GT to Warrior. I currently have it on Slight Taster but to be completely honest I didn't taste a bitterness but just barely detected that there must be some chemical in the paper strip.

DOS, the shape of the head may also put you in the Warrior category.  I first entered my measurements the other way around and swami spat Warrior for me!!!  I have been doing so well with the Teacher diet for the last few weeks, that it did not take me long to spot the typo.

Some interesting thing with my Swami too which is relevant here, is that, whatever toxins are in Pecorino cheese that makes it a black dot for this healthy teacher, with white lines and a family history with cancer and diabetics, those same toxins makes it a diamond (peccorino cheese), when I input any digestive disorder and elevated liver enzymes.  Yogurt is a diamond food in the first case, but gets demoted to superfood in the second case.  Also all the other cheeses get promoted to diamond.

So obviously, these hard cheeses do balance our digestive organs (Teachers that is).

Quoted from DoS
I have already done it once. I just... I can spot a Warrior in a crowd you know, and they respond to the warrior cheese. I do not look like them or respond to the cheese. The only thing I respond to are the principles of the Teacher (aside from maybe the amounts). Also personality wise I am a Teacher by far...

Would swami give me very different results if the leg status changed? I mean that is the only difference if I am manually making it Teacher.


Why not do the program as it says, but add the few cheeses that you feel are important..

I revisited the measuring thing, and once again found either I was wrong or did something wrong. My lower is about a half inch shorter. Maybe this is a difference between some of my leg muscle not protruding so much so I could measure to where the crease line should be or just confusion (exercising less these days). In either which case it does make me a Teacher secreter or non-secreter.

I can not really see a difference between the lists. All I know is I want bacteria/fungi whatever is bugging me down. It makes me digest better so I can eat more, and makes my bladder hold way more. I also get a lot more feeling back in my senses of skin etc.

have you followed the yeast fungus protocol?
tried a low glycemic approach, until your problem gets resolved, while following your teacher swami, omitting foods to be avoided in
the allergies health series book for an A nonnie like you?

I d give that double approach a try, until you get your bacterial issue balanced out.

I got some Stinging Nettle because it was really cheap. Other than that I eat a lot of the foods associated with the protocols.
